Accidents Happen.

I was planning on today's card being a one layer card with just some decoupaged butterflies, however, accidents happen and when I went to stamp the butterflies with the script background by Kanban, I couldn't tell where the mask finished and the sponging began so impatiently I ran  a pen around the edges not realising that the ink had bled through to the card. I couldn't waste it so die cut the frame and removed the back of the card, to bring it together I pierced around the edges.
Hope this still qualifies for a "Less is more" entry!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
GNS37, 3 of something,
OG159, Wings,
LIM124, Hexagons,
CCC June, Wings.

Thanks for stopping by,

Love the simplicity and clean feel of this card - of course it wasn't simple at all, but the best things are often deceptive. Beautiful butterflies. Thanks for playing with us at OG - see you again soon.
